The Passion of Joan of Arc is one of my very, very favorite films, if not my all-time favorite, and I was longing for another venture from the massively acclaimed director Carl Theodor Dreyer, so, I turned to his "Second Best Film". I thought that it could never top Joan of Arc, and maybe so, but I don't care; Ordet is a masterpiece. It is probably the most spiritually significant film I've ever s... read more

Ordet is absolutely amazing. The combination of sublime camera work and exceptional performances give it a real intensity. Whilst being very restrained in all aspects of its narrative, characterisation, visual compositions and structure, it attains an incredibly hypnotic and haunting style. Its images convey so much emotion in the characters by allowing their expressions to work in tandem with mas... read more

“The Passion of Joan of Arc is one of my very, very favorite films, if not my all-time favorite, and I was longing for another venture from the massively acclaimed director Carl Theodor Dreyer, so, I turned to his "Second Best Film". I thought that it could never top Joan of Arc, and maybe so, but I don't care; Ordet is a masterpiece. It is probably the most spiritually significant film I've ever seen, a visually marvelous meditation on religion, faith, and forgiveness. Dreyer's direction was excellent, and his camerawork and tracking shots were, just like in Joan of Arc mesmerizing and totally ahead of their time. Throughout the whole film I was in awe at the different philosophies clashing heads and how it was perfectly done, waiting for the ending, the true meaning of the film, and the e” read more

Movie Diary 2013 (403 movies items)

"15.7. Äärimmäinen mestariteos, jonka kuvaus ihmisen suhteesta uskontoon ja ylipäätänsä uskontojen olemassaolon syistä on totuusarvoltaan liki dokumentin tasoa. Samalla vuosikymmenensä kauneimpia tapauksia tyylipuhtaan ja pelkistetyn yleisilmeensä osalta, vailla yhtäkään turhaa kuvaa ja tyhjäkäynnin hetkeä."

New-to-Me Films of 2013 (520 movies items)

" Danish director Carl Dreyer is one of those filmmakers that have always interested me, yet I’ve managed to keep on the back-burner for whatever reason. In the past I’ve seen both Vampyr and The Passion of Joan of Arc, both of which amazed me; the latter, in fact, is within my all-time personal favorites. I finally decided to delve more into his work with Ordet, one of his more well-known works, and, undoubtedly, a masterpiece all on its own. Simply put, Ordet is a film about faith. Moreove"
